OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — First National Bank of Omaha was founded back in 1857 and has become one of the city’s largest companies. Alongside Greater Omaha Chamber’s Startup Collaborative, the two have partnered up to invest in Omaha with the Future Fellows program.
“We knew that there were a lot of entrepreneurs in the community. The bank is always about investing in our community,” Senior Vice President of Innovation & Disruption at FNBO Marc Butterfield said.
The program started in 2018. This year there were 80 applicants, and 40 of them made it into the program.
In the end, five of the startups earned grant funding - a total of $50,000 split between them.
